On Loan Celtic Star Set For A Return To Manchester City: Why Rodgers Should Try To Tie Him Down!

Not for nothing does every player on the planet want to play under the tutelage of Pep Guardiola. The Spanish tactician was credited with developing Lionel Messi into what he is today and if Guardiola is known for anything, it is his intricate knowledge of the game and how to transmit that to his players.

He plays the beautiful game the way it was meant to, with all class and passion. His tactics may have been rebuffed on occasions but when it works, it works like a charm. As was evident in this season’s English league, Manchester City won the title with record points, record goals and record wins.

It is now being reported that he may have one more student who desperately wants to join up with the City squad. Patrick Roberts is currently out on loan at Celtic but is eying a return to his parent club, Manchester City this summer.

“I’ve enjoyed my football (with Celtic) and everyone knows that,” he said. “But you also have to look at the bigger picture and I have certain ambitions in my head and places that I want to be.

“To get there I need to come out of my comfort zone and try to reach those targets, but playing for Celtic has been a dream come true and I’ve enjoyed every minute.

“(Playing in the Premier League) is the main aim. Being an English player and having come through the system in the Premier League, (the ambition) is to play for a top club in the Premier League.

I’m at one now with Manchester City and they’re doing well but you’ve got to look at yourself, and what’s best for you, and try to pick the best option possible.

“When the time comes we’ll see. I’ll enjoy the summer and the rest of this season and when it comes to July, kick on from there.”

Should Roberts leave for City, he will get some excellent players and a fantastic coach to train with but he will certainly not be guaranteed game time.

As for Celtic, he is a star player at Celtic Park and the club will sorely miss him should he leave. The player has been one of the main architects of their incredible run in the last few seasons, which has seen them win the domestic treble in the last term and they are almost there in this season as well. Roberts’ presence in their midfield has given solidity to the Hoops lineup and a huge sigh of relief for their manager, Brendan Rodgers, who should try every trick in the book to keep the player at Parkhead beyond this season.

Moreover, at Celtic, he will get the necessary game time he needs to continue developing and hence he should definitely stick it out for at least another season before moving back to Manchester.
